direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Try contacting the debian maintainers of kernel-headers-2.4.18 and 
module-assistant. There is a bug in one of those packages. I worked 
around that problem on my mail host because I thought I had a wrong 
setup, but it seems I'm not the only one.
I know at least the maintainer of module-assistant is generally helpful 
and friendly.


PS: To work around the problem, you need to install 
kernel-source-2.4.18, unpack it and link or copy it's Makefile (and the 
scripts directory) into the kernel-headers-2.4.18 directory. As far as I 
recall, this is all that's needed to work around that problem.
